Long story short:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has hopped on board the digital clue train at long last and opened up its vast treasures to the world.

They've made 375,000 high-resolution images โ€” including those of some of the greatest works on the planet โ€” available to anyone who wants to use them in any way, shape or form, no permission needed.

Thank you for telling us about this! (On picture #15: "pet magpie"?)
